Oops, I hadn't realized that this post has been in the drafts for quite some time now. I know that there have probably been a lot of changes (food, prices, etc.) since I last visited but I still decided to post this in case anyone wanted to try this restaurant.
I first tried Chef Chris' creations at his previous restaurant, C Italian Cuisine in Pampanga. I remember feeling that their food was a little pricey (I was only in high school back then, and only relied on my allowance to get me by XD) but that it was really, really good. My friends and I especially liked the panizza, and for good reason, since that was their specialty.
|Oasis Salad | 540 PhP|
a blend of artichokes hearts, roasted peppers, capers, caramelized
onion, sun dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, arugula and romaine lettuce
|The Original Verena | 790 PhP|
tomato and white truffle oil enhanced cheese sauce
topped with scallop, prawns and sun dried tomatoes
|Lemon and Lime Cheesecake | 320 PhP|
baked cheese cake with almond crust
finely crusted with sugar crust sweet lemon lime sauce and almond
|Mocha Latte | 120 PhP|
We were lucky enough to see Chef Chris himself walking around the restaurant asking the diners about their dining experience. I like the fact that he interacts with customers and how down-to-earth he seems.
